Miami Dolphins offensive line coach resigns after video allegedly shows him snorting powder

Chris Foerster resigned as Miami Dolphins offensive line coach, one day after a video was released that appeared to show him snorting a white powdered substance.

The Dolphins became aware of the video Sunday night and began to work to confirm its authenticity and when it was recorded.

It’s an embarrassing moment for Foerster and the Dolphins, which brings unwanted national attention in some ways reminiscent of the way the the Richie Incognito bullying scandal did in 2013.

“I am resigning from my position with the Miami Dolphins and accept full responsibility for my actions,” Foerster said in a statement released Monday. “I want to apologize to the organization and my sole focus is on getting the help that I need with the support of my family and medical professionals.”

Foerster was Miami’s offensive line coach under coach Adam Gase for two seasons, returning to a franchise he worked for in 2004. That season, Foerster held the role of offensive coordinator under Dave Wannstedt after Joel Collier resigned for health reasons.

In the video, which lasts just under a minute, Foerster addresses a camera and speaks of missing the person watching, and states that he is snorting the substance before heading to a meeting.

Foerster can be seen snorting three lines of a substance with a $20 bill.

In a statement, the Dolphins said, “We were made aware of the video late last night and have no tolerance for this behavior. After speaking with Chris this morning, he accepted full responsibility and we accepted his resignation effective immediately. Although Chris is no longer with the organization, we will work with him to get the help he needs during this time.”

Here are a few excerpts from the video:

“Hey baby, miss you, thinking about you. How about me going into a meeting and doing this before I go?

“There’s those big grains falling, but I miss you, I miss you a lot.

“What do you think, I’m crazy? I don’t know babe, it’s going to be a while before we can do this again, cause I know you’re going to keep that baby. But I think about you when I do it. I think about how much I miss you. How high we get together. How much fun we have when we get together. It was so much fun. Last little bit before I go to my meeting.”

The Palm Beach Post was alerted to the presence of the video posted on a Facebook page by a Twitter notification from a person alleging to be Kijuana Nige.

Foerster began his coaching career at Colorado State in 1982 before moving on to Stanford and Minnesota.

In 1993, Foerster began his NFL coaching career with the Vikings, moving on to Tampa, Indianapolis, Miami, Baltimore, San Francisco, Washington, San Francisco (again) and Miami (again), under coach Adam Gase.

After a 1-4 start last season, Miami’s had a better season thusfar in large part due to improvement by the offensive line. Less than two weeks ago, Gase credited Foerster for the work he does getting multiple players ready to play multiple positions.

During the final 11 games of the 2016 regular season, Miami ranked third in the NFL, with 132.9 rushing yards per game, and tied for third with 13 sacks allowed.

Foerster has mentored six players that were selected to 15 Pro Bowls – center Jeff Christy (2000), center Tony Mayberry (1996-99), guard Randall McDaniel (1993, 1995, 2000), tackle Jonathan Ogden (2005-07), tackle Joe Staley (2015) and tackle Trent Williams (2012-14).

With Miami, Foerster has worked with offensive linemen such as Branden Albert, Laremy Tunsil, Mike Pouncey and Ja’Wuan James, all former first-round draft choices.

Miami’s assistant offensive line coach is Chris Kuper, who has 10 years of NFL experience and is in his second season with the Dolphins.

Franz Jakob’s story has gone viral after a photo of him giving a haircut to a child took social media by storm.

Jakob was seen lying down on the floor, giving Wyatt Lafreniere a haircut. Wyatt has autism and his mother told ABC News that “He doesn’t like his hair to be touched and a lot of sounds are aggressive for him.”

Jakob had cut Wyatt’s hair before, telling CBC that, “I understood that with Wyatt I have to follow him around the salon with my tools to finish the cut.”

This time, finishing the cut meant putting a mirror in front of Wyatt on the floor and Jakob sprawling out behind the boy, finishing the trim.

Wyatt isn’t the only customer with special needs at, Authentischen Barbier, Jakob’s old-fashioned shop.

He has many clients who are children with special needs. He also serves terminally ill customers and doesn’t charge them, ABC News reported.

“When you shave someone who is probably going to die within 48 hours ... it’s indescribable,” Jakob told CBC.

He schedules the special cuts at the end of the day so there’s no push to get the next person into the chair and he can take the time he needs, ABC News reported.

Wyatt usually has a 90-minute appointment that starts with the two either playing a game or eating candy.

>> Read more trending news

Volunteer rescue workers, along with officials and other ordinary citizens, dug through the debris of collapsed buildings, including a three-story primary and secondary school, where they found students dead after Tuesday’s quake.

“We can hear small noises, but we don’t know if they’re coming from above or below, from the walls above (crumbling), or someone below calling for help,” volunteer rescue worker Dr. Pedro Serrano told the Associated Press.

>> Related: Buildings damaged following large earthquake in Mexico City

Tuesday’s earthquake is the deadliest in Mexico since the 1985 quake, which took place on the same date and left thousands dead.

It is also the second devastating earthquake to hit the region in less than two weeks.

A week and a half ago, a magnitude-8.1 quake killed about 90 people.

Here’s how to help Mexico and those affected by the earthquake:

1. Donate clothes, water and food

If you’re nearby the tragedy, donate canned goods to relief or collection centers listed here at Elfinanciero.com.

You can also donate goods to nonprofits on the ground, including UNICEF MexicoRed Cross MexicoSave the Children MexicoOxfam MexicoLa Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico or Project Paz.

2. Make a monetary donation

Consider donating to those nonprofits listed above (UNICEF MexicoRed Cross MexicoSave the Children MexicoOxfam MexicoLa Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico or Project Paz).

Topos Mexico, a Mexican rescue brigade, is also accepting PayPal donations

3. Use social media to spread awareness

A simple retweet could get the right person where they need to be or the right information where it needs to go.

While you’re on social media, consider retweeting aid accounts or locals to connect them to the appropriate resources.

For example, Topos Mexico has been sharing lists of areas where they need professional medical care.

Locals are also tweeting photos of areas where help is needed. Here, someone calls for help on Twitter for a collapsed building in Coquimbo, where many were trapped.

Some have even tweeted about open hospitals and where victims can receive free treatment, such as the emergency room at Hospital Ángeles Pedregal below.

There is also a Google spreadsheet of rescued individuals that’s being shared on social media. 

4. If you’re around, volunteer

Mexico City officials have put together a volunteer coordination site, asking those interested to head to the Emergency Rescue Squad (ERUM) building in Chimalpopoca.

But officials warn volunteers to stick to their nearest disaster zones and avoid entering other zones.

‘Hot single female’ uses creative sign to get electricity back after Hurricane Irma

One Florida woman who lost electricity during Hurricane Irma decided to take an unusual route to get the attention of workers.

Yahoo Lifestyle WFTS reported that Kynse Angles of Fort Myers, Florida, took some pink spray paint and created a sign reading “Hot single female seeks sexy lineman to electrify her life.”

>> Read more trending news

Wearing a pink tank top, white shorts and heels, she posed next to the sign outside and posted the photo on Instagram and Facebook Sunday.

Angles, 37, who has lived with Type 1 diabetes since childhood, had a kidney and pancreas transplant Sept. 1 before the storm.

Angles told Yahoo Lifestyle she was discharged from a Tampa, Florida, hospital too early because of a rush to release patients before the storm. She said she had problems at a nearby hotel and had to spend the storm and several days afterward at the hospital.

“I said, ‘I want my bed. I’m single. It’s hot outside. I need electricity,’” she said.

Angles said she thought the sign would be funny.

“That was my idea. I like to be humorous,” she told Yahoo Life.

“I just thought maybe if a lineman got to my neighborhood they’ll laugh and hook me up first,” Angles told WFTS.

The photo of the sign received hundreds of shares and likes on Facebook.

As it gained traction online, a Fort Myers radio station had Angles on air, which she said also played a big role in regaining power quickly.

It all worked: Later that day, Angles’ power had been restored.

2017 Emmy Awards: Donald Glover wins 2 Emmys for 'Atlanta,' makes history

Donald Glover took home two Emmys on Sunday night: one for best comedic actor and one for directing in a comedic series for his FX series, “Atlanta.”

The episode he directed that won the Emmy featured Paper Boi on a Charlie Rose-type talk show. It was a "show within a show" with fake ads inserted, as well.

Glover, at the dais after winning best comedic actor, joked that President Donald Trump should take credit in his win for helping make black people “No. 1 on the most oppressed list.”
